New GORE FR Apparel Protects Oil & Gas Workers

10/04/2016
W. L. Gore & Associates has created GORE fire-resistent apparel with GORE-TEX® PYRAD® fabric to protect workers in the oil and gas industry.

GORE® FR Apparel is a new line of FR foul weather outerwear products designed to meet the demanding needs of oil and gas workers. A jacket, bib, and detachable hood combination offers protection from incidental flame exposure and weather protection across a wide range of environmental conditions, while offering moisture management to improve comfort and safety. The durable, lightweight two-layer ePTFE membrane construction also helps protect workers from exposure to hot liquids, steam and common oilfield contaminants —  while allowing for easy care and cleaning.

Leveraging the same platform as GORE-TEX® Fabric and utilizing Gore's proprietary PYRAD® Fabric Technology, GORE® FR Apparel complies to ASTM F2733-09 and ASTM F1891-12 and adds retro-reflective properties that meet or exceed ANSI/ISEA 107-15 Class O, Type 1 and CSA Z96-15, Class 1, Level 2 offering HSE managers the confidence they need when selecting FR outerwear for their employees.

"Simply put, GORE® FR Apparel is a best-in-class line of foul-weather outerwear products that will deliver an unprecedented performance-to-value solution for our customers in the oil and gas markets," said Sean McDearmon, market development champion for Gore. "A new performance benchmark has been established."
